I once posted on my Instagram page that everything is better crusted in parmesan and herbs. And boy, do I mean it. It's also a super easy way to impart fresh flavor and diversify texture with almost no effort.
For this one, I used previously frozen cod filets that have been thawed. You can totally use any white fish filet you have on hand, and I've even done this with salmon and enjoyed the result. I've also tried this method but switched up the herbs to whatever I have growing on my kitchen windowsill at the time. Parsley is a classic, along with dill, chives and like I use here, basil.
About 20 minutes, and you've got a delicious pescatarian lunch or dinner - easy enough for a weeknight but impressive enough for guests. Serve it with quinoa, like I do, a rice pilaf, sauteed zucchini or greens, or even atop a fresh green salad.

Preheat the oven to 425(f). In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, garlic infused oil, lemon juice, and 1/4 tsp of the black pepper. In a separate bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, basil, salt and remaining 1/4 tsp black pepper.
Dip each fish filet in the mayonnaise mixture, then dredge into the breadcrumb mixture. I like to press as much of the bread, cheese and herb mix onto the fish as possible.
Place in a glass baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the fish is flaky and cooked through. While the fish bakes, whip up a tasty side! Like this Parmesan Spinach Quinoa from Delicious as it Looks.
Serve it up with extra slices of lemon, and enjoy!
